Luminous Innovations

HiLight – printed OLEDs®

Together with Inuru GmbH, we present the development of the HiLight – printed electronics®- technology: bright packaging/bright label based on printed, flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). Awarded five national and international awards.

HiLight – smart LEDs®

A patented innovation by Karl Knauer which – being a minimalist creation – integrates light, into every paper, cardboard or corrugated cardboard product in an aesthetic, functional and affordable way to develop a sustainable solution that is “made in Germany”. Together we will make your ideas shine.

HiLight – printed electronics®

Pure innovation. The cardboard box for the high-quality spirit drink "Bombay Sapphire" is probably the world's first over-the-counter packaging with a printed, actively illuminated surface - realised with proprietary HiLight –  printed electronics® technology. The lighting animation is triggered when lifting the packaging: The individual design elements separated into five levels, begin to shine.
